Oppose The Tory Dictated DUP-Sinn Fein Budget

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Saturday December 18, 2010 00:06author by RNU PRO - Republican Network for Unity (RNU) Report this post to the editors

REPUBLICAN NETWORK for UNITY (RNU) Spokesperson, MARTIN ÓG MEEHAN responded to this week’s Stormont draft budget proposals as; “Draconian cuts dictated by David Cameron’s Tory-led British government”.

REPUBLICAN NETWORK for UNITY (RNU) Spokesperson, MARTIN ÓG MEEHAN responded to this week’s Stormont draft budget proposals as; “Draconian cuts dictated by David Cameron’s Tory-led British government”.

Mr. Meehan said; “It is quite clear that the Stormont partners are more than happy thousands of job losses and severe cuts to crucial services and benefits for those are already amongst the most disadvantaged members of our community. The budget cuts were conceived and ordered by Cameron and their sole purpose is to serve first and foremost the interests of the British government.

London’s order’s will only serve to protect the profits of many of those individuals and institutions most responsible for the economic losses that have occurred and insulate them from any share in the hardships inflicted on the working- class”.

Mr. Meehan continued; “A decent quality of life is a fundamental principle of Irish Republicanism. Whereby every citizen should be treated as equals. Perhaps this budget marks step one in the twenty-five year plan to re-brand the North’s economy to imperialist liking. RNU Activists are already looking to the slogans and protests spearheaded by Sinn Fein against cuts in the 26 Counties. How can Republicans and nationalists take such stands seriously when the same party is only too willing to wield similar cuts at the behest of the British government as part of a Stormont administration? Their hypocritical stance is both shameful and embarrassing and has rightfully been noticed not only by people in community affected, but by the media also.

The Republican Network for Unity will continue to confer and join with authentic opponents of these British mandated DUP/Sinn Fein cuts against those who are facilitating not fighting these policies. We urge others to stand-up be counted and make your voices heard!”
